For the past several years, Stephanie Terry has been the Executive Director of the Koch Family Children's Museum of Evansville (cMoe). She took a new job that will keep her pretty busy for at least the next four years (she's the new Mayor of Evansville), so the museum had to find a replacement, and now we know who that is.

What Is the Next Chapter for cMoe?

One of the chapters Erica was referring to Play It Forward, a capital campaign with a goal of raising $6.5 million dollars to build a new mobile museum and outdoor exhibit on the rooftop. The museum will also use these funds for some much-needed refreshing and redesigning of the water play area, theater, and other exhibits. Play It Forward is the largest, most significant fundraising effort in the museum’s history.
